I've stayed at a lot of hostels, and this one is up there with the best. While the dorms were pretty standard, the rest of the facilities made staying there a lot of fun. The TV room had hundred of movies, sports channels and comfy sofas. The garden has volleyball, basketball, football, ping pong and a swimming pool. At the...

Pretty much the same price as everything else in the area accept you have eggs and toast in the morning that you can cook yourself - epic! Our dorm was bug and spacious and was cleaned everyday which is rare for a hostel! It has a bar but we couldn't hear any noise from our room. There is a nice...

Although the common facilities were good (a bit outdated perhaps), especially the bar, our rooms (ground floor, next to the reception) was not. There were a lot of bugs in our beds and dogs were allowed in the rooms. The hygienic standard was quite low. Breakfast is provided, but is not substantial; if you are lucky you can have some...

The Pit Stop is located in a great part of Medellin near parks, bars, malls, and scenic walkways. The Poblado neighborhood is very clean and attractive. This hostel offers a great space to relax and make friends. Not so much of a party hostel as some nearby, but it definitely has a cool vibe. There are lots of spaces for...

First of all the ladies at the reception were extremely helpful in getting our things done. There is secured parking and one of the few budget accommodations which allow pets. The location of the hostel is really great. There are several parks just outside the hostel, the zone rosa as well as a huge Exito, Home Center and several shopping...

Even though the location is great and the staff was super friendly and nice, the rooms that were offered are horrible - small, no window, broken bed and unreasonable pricing. Not recommeded at all (or make sure in advance that you get a good room).

This place has good facilites, but it is just another hostel and has nothing special to it. The girl doing the check-in was really unfriendly - almost rude - right from the check-in onwards. We received a map of the neighboorhood with food suggestions, and all of these wonderful suggestions were fast food chains that you can find anywhere all...

I stayed there for 3 days. The facilities are great with a swimming pool, basketball court and a nice tv lounge. On the downside I found that most of the staff was really unfriendly, they always seemed bothered by questions. I can kind of understand it as they are solicited every minute by drunk backpackers that don t even bother...

The people are friendly, the pool is awesome, there's a nice space to meet new people and a very friendly dog. The rooms are big and the beds are comfortable. Good kitchen, it's possible to use it. Very well located, near the mall and also the Zona Rosa, where you can find the bars and nightclubs.
